VAN SANDWYK, Charles (author and illustrator). Afterglow. North Vancouver; The Fairy Press. November 2008

Slim square 8vo. Original pictorial handmade card covers embellished in gilt with printed flaps and a fold-out upper cover which forms a wonderful, 3-panel, coloured fairy panorama; the book prettily tied at the spine with hand-dyed silk ribbon; pp. [8], or 2 folded leaves; illustrated with 3 further coloured fairy illustrations; a fine copy complete with the original, loosely inserted, "Dream Tag" with pretty silk ribbon tie; increasingly elusive.
This copy is signed by the artist Charles van Sandwyk to the lower cover. The loosely inserted "Dream Tag" is finely printed in sparkling gilt, in calligraphic font, and reads: "If visions of Fairyland dance in your head, then tie this old tag to a post on your bed. Your dreams will be rich and your heart will feel light as you wake up refreshed from the cool autumn night".
